Winner “Best Production” – Dublin Fringe Festival 2018.
Centring on a dysfunctional relationship between a blind father and his sighted daughter, My Dad’s Blind uses audio recordings, irreverent comedy and real life memories to explore a father daughter relationship and all the awkward, embarrassing and ridiculous ways they struggle to navigate a sighted world with a guide dog that’s just had a stroke.
“At its core lies an astringent comic sensibility and a lively theatrical imagination, brought to life by the energetic performers. All in all, a singular vision of a potentially difficult subject.” ★★★★ – The Irish Times
“Feels more authentic than anything this reviewer has seen at the Fringe in years.” ★★★★ – The Reviews Hub
